Did Peter Not Have A Good Time?

SCENARIO
Imagine you are talking to a relative, a friend or a colleague. Maybe you are talking about someone you both know. Perhaps the person you are talking about has visited Spain recently. You might have said something which gave the impression that the person in question did not have a good time in Spain. Your relative, friend or colleague wants to ask you if the person you are talking about did not have a good time in Spain.

He/ she could choose say to you:
Peter lo ha pasado bien en España ¿o no?




OUR TIP
This is a straight forward question about a third person. Thus, depending on what you want to say, most of the words in the question itself may be re-used in the answer without any changes. In order to answer the question, you want to choose between saying that :
  • The person in question did have a good time in Spain
  • The person in question did not have a good time in Spain
  • You don't know, the person in question has not told you

Here are some examples which deal with those basic possibilities:
  • Sí, (Peter) lo ha pasado muy bien en España (Yes, had a good time)
  • No, (Peter) no lo ha pasado bien en España (No, not had a good time)
  • No lo sé, (Peter) no me lo ha dicho (Don't know... did not tell)

Now you should practice answering the question:
Peter lo ha pasado bien en España ¿o no?
